If you have done some modification and accidentally erased the files before Time Machine could run its next automatic backup then you are out of luck if you want to get back those files.

Logical corruption of hard drive: Another common way of losing the files is due to HDD corruption. Volume header corruption, catalog file corruption or Journal corruptions are common logical corruptions which make your data inaccessible resulting in data loss.
